    Dealer camp soon - whats next?

    So - all believe a b+ full susser AKA Sight + or similar...

    Surprisingly they got a major holes in there line with no long range 29er and no plus size. I'm thinking either one of those bikes.

    Perfect world is sight goes the Ibis3 route and becomes plus size in a 27.5 frame.

    My sources have confirmed a full suspension version of the Torrent b+ bike.
    Hoping for a longer, lower, and slacker Range with a bit less anti-squat in the suspension, it's a great platform but I think it's due for a refresh.

    Optics appear to be updated too but look totally unappealing to me compared to Scott's Spark line up.

    Optics are the same. Is there really a market for the Ithaqua.

    They just released their cx bike today, I wonder if they are doing a daily release to give each bike a little bit of prime time

    in the 26+/27.5+/29+ forum, a 2017 has already been purchased and the spec and color way is outstanding - Torrent 7.1 has a DVO fork, Fox Transfer dropper, Spank wheels, etc... go check the pix - its awesome looking. Now we wait for the rest of the lineup to drop -

    I really only looked at a few things, and I don't want to get my source in trouble, but expect some pretty exciting changes/additions. I would expect the info to start leaking anytime as the dealers have the early book.

    after a free trailhead demo on a diff brand Bplus hard tail I can't wait for the new torrent to become available. Geo on the torrent is better and I had so much fun on the 3.0 nobby nic that I must have a hardtail as my other bike.

    Looks like Sam Blenkinsop was riding a new Range at EWS Whistler yesterday. I still can't find a good picture of it but it looks like it may be a 29.....

    Here are a few more pics. Looks like it has the Fluid + that is shown on the other link above. But shows one of the new Range colors, Threshold, and Revolver. Can't wait to see the full line-up.

    With other company's dropping DH bikes and focus on Enduro instead I wonder what is going on with Norco. Will we see a mid year redo on the Sight and Range?

    Carbon Sights/Ranges - my guess is it will be a formal launch w press ride reviews etc... what was updated today was done so very 'quietly' around Eurobike... i suspect a bigger splash will be planned like many of the other manufacturers new bike launches...

    I'm hoping for a 29" Sight or Range. I'd seriously consider getting rid of my '15 Range for a 29" Sight.

    I don't think they would pull current model year bikes off the website unless are being replaced very soon. That being said I don't believe the current MY16 range and sight have been out for 12 months yet.

    Norco Fluid 7.1 got a great write-up on Bikeradar, unfortunately it's the 2016 model!

    Norco Fluid 7.1 review - BikeRadar

    The frame hasn't changed so it will be the same sweet ride but this year they've downgraded from a Fox Float Performance to a Rockshox Recon Gold.

    I haven't heard when they're going to release the details, and I don't even know (other than boost) whether there are many changes to the Range or Sight. I was too busy checking out the 29er versions!

    Seems like there will be a 29er and a 27.5+ version of the Range. Release Jan/Feb 2017... Not sure though if we will see them at interbike.

    Still no info released on the new stuff? I don't know if Norco's suspense building technique is dialed. I wonder what would happen if I posted the Sight 29er geometry chart?

    I thought they weren't going to release info until Feb/Mar next year. Seems like a long time to make folks wait. People may have already made buying decisions for the spring by then.

    If you got the info I'd love to see it. Posted or PM'd.

    Yeah, it's no Evil. It's numbers are similar to the Stumpy and Hightower though, and people seem to like them. It should be a versatile platform and my LBS sells them, so hopefully it will work out well.

    Ha, I sent him a pm asking him about something else. I am assuming you are wanting the numbers on the 27.5 range? Somebody posted the numbers on the 29er range. The 27.5 will probably be a 1/2 degree slacker and a touch shorter as well.
    Here is what was posted:

    So supposedly 7 am ET this morning was going to be the Sight reveal. Went to the Norco website, Facebook, and Instagram and have seen nothing...

    I was online first thing too, counted down the last 15 minutes until 7am UK time and nothing...? There's a video playing in the background that I think we've seen but there's nothing anywhere else or on the social networks.

    Like what I see of the Sight so far! Especially the metric shocks!
